He has been a bit wobbly last week after a couple of heavy falls. Spent all yesterday in bed. I persuaded him to come down for evening and then back to bed and sleeping by 10.30. I was woken by noises at 3.00 and found him downstairs , wearing shoes and overcoat [ always needs assistance normally ]. He said "I've made tea and I'm off to work ". He's 81 and hasn't gone to work for 8 years.
I asked where he was going and he said " Bow Lane ". He hasn't gone to Bow Lane for 30 years ! I said "Its 3.00. Go back to bed" He went off obediently and straight back to sleep. Fully clothed. As for me I couldn't get back to sleep, of course . . . Tea and crossword and tired today.
When he dreams its usually about early years when his business [ printing] was new and they were all young and keen. I guess he remembers the energy he had. Sad.
I have no energy today !!!! Jean
